Our flatbed services are the answer when it comes to:

  • Reliably transporting oversized cargo locally or across state borders 
  • Ensuring complete safety of your load during loading, OTR transit, and unloading 
  • Complying with all long-haul shipping standards and regulations

Our professional flatbed services

01

Regular flatbed

The most generic type of an open deck trailer, it is widely used for transporting loads that do not require a dry van or other types of protected trailers.

02

Drop / Double drop deck

Used for oversized loads, these trailers have a much lower clearance than regular flatbeds, making it easier to go under bridges and through tunnels.

03

Removable Gooseneck (RGN)

These specialized trailers can be easily detached from the front side, allowing for motorized equipment like bulldozers to be driven onto them.

04

Extendable flatbed

This flatbed trailer can be extended to be 80 feet long, which is enough for transporting pipes or extra-long construction elements.

05

Conestoga trailers

If your load does not require a dry van, but can make use of some extra protection from the elements, use a trailer with a Conestoga tarp for peace of mind.

06

Multi-axle flatbeds

When you need to transport an extra-heavy piece of equipment with non-standard dimensions, use our multi-axle trailers to get the job done.
